My First Taste of Italy: Milan

Germany, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Austria, and….

I have officially traveled to/within five countries within seven months of my arrival. I swear even now it doesn’t always feel real. How did I get so blessed to be living this life? So many wonderful places to experience and all at the tips of my fingers. I could not have asked for a better life.

Today We Remember...

Today is a day to remember. To honor those that have sacrificed everything in the name of our country. Take time to remember them today and to thank them for paying the ultimate price for our country.

Chewy, Chocolatey, Chocolate Chip Cookies

A while back I made several items to contribute to the Company's bake sale. I of course made my sugar cookies with a Spring time color twist, a batch of s'mores bars (I'll add that recipe later), and these delicious chocolate chip cookies. They are so addictive and at a batch of about three dozen be careful leaving these in the house.

Five on Friday: The Edge of Never and Weekend Warriors

Woot Woot it’s the weekend!!! Well close enough… It has been a pretty good week over here in Germany. I had the pleasure of TWO ladies nights this weekend and it was so wonderful to just hang out and talk with some gal-pals over delicious food. I’ve been reading up a storm as of late. It feels so good to loose yourself within a great book for a few hours everyday. Before I knew it I was back on track for my year goal of 120. 29 books, 24 days, it was touch and go there for a bit with my sanity. Well it is time for the best thing about Friday in the blog world:

Spring in Ludwigsburg


Recently we got out to see another treasure of Baden-Württemberg: Ludwigsburg Palace. The beautiful palace is one of a few left Baroque gems untouched by the wars, making the tour truly special; however once again no pictures allowed of the rooms. Come on people!!!

Spring Festival 2016

Back at Christmas time I talked about how everything seems to be celebrated in Germany. Of course the arrival Spring is no different here. We partook in the local fun of Spring Festival. Three weeks of markets, food, beer tents, and rides galore. So basically like a State Fair. It was so much and fun and amusing to be there. Spring Festival really ramps you up for the warm sunny days to come and all outdoor activities that will start to take place. The day we went was one where James’ crazy schedule really paid off. On a Monday evening you basically have the entire event to yourself!!! This is how you do the festivals.
